Indian And Metis Lawyers On Increase

SASKATCHEWAN INDIAN      FEBRUARY 1979      v09 n02 p20  
The number of graduate lawyers of Indian or Metis ancestry in Canada has increased dramatically since 1973 when the University of Saskatchewan introduced its annual summer program of legal studies for native people. Then, there were only four qualified native lawyers in the entire country. Today, 31 have received law degrees and 10 more are expected to graduate next spring from law schools across Canada. Most of these completed the summer program in Saskatoon, which is administered by the University's Native Law Center.
